There's no reason not to go with Enroth.

Don't you mean Friday?

But yes, Enroth without a doubt. Look at the game's he's come into, and how well he's played, I think we should keep playing him until he plays badly and then we can throw Miller back in. I think Enroth can handle it.

Friday.

Give Enroth Calgary and Miller a "rebound" game against Ottawa.

Enroth gets the starts until he proves he shouldn't start any longer.

Enroth. We need a win. I don't care about Miller's feeling. He can have his shot against Ottawa.

If Enroth was suppose to start against Calgary.... He should start.

If Miller was scheduled to start..... Miller should start.

Sounds like a bumper sticker? Besides, who knows the schedule? Pick a goalie..

That's the way I feel as well.

Enough with the entitlements. Enroth was a big reason this team made the playoffs last season and he should not just be given the start against Calgary, he should stay between the pipes as long as he plays well, and he HAS played very well when given the chance.

I'm in no way comparing Enroth to Hasek but Hasek was basically a nobody until Fuhr went down with an injury.

The sabres should be putting the best players on the ice that give them the best chance to win. If it's Enroth, great. If it's Miller, great as well but Enroth deserves more than just 1 game out of every 4 or 5 if he is playing the way he has been and Miller is shaky, as he has been.

Miller should start next game. He's got a ways to fall before Enroth moves ahead of him on the chart, even if it's just for a few days. Enroth, however, should still get the start he was scheduled for.

The guy's within a handful of games of setting the franchise record for wins. He gets a long leash.

I am surprised Jame started this thread

Honestly, it should be Enroth, I wouldn't mind seeing how he does with another game. Miller is not going to care (to the point of it being an issue). Until there is a reason to objectively think differently, Miller is the starter and better goalie. Enroth is the backup/apprentice.

But Enroth has officially deserved a second game on Friday.

Enroth pitched a shutout tonight.

I always favor going back to the hot hand after a shutout, and I think this situation qualifies.

Precisely. And I'm guessing Enroth had already been told he was playing that game. Three games in four nights and the back-to-back is against a WC team and a division rival. Miller almost always gets the divisional games. Thus, Enroth will get the start.

The real controversy starts after they beat Calgary.

Tim Thomas won a Vezina Trophy three years ago, then played less than half the games the next season because Rask was out-performing him. Thomas came back the next year, won another Vezina and a Stanley Cup.

If that can happen to Tim Thomas what makes Ryan Miller above sitting out a few games if Enroth is playing well? Or, Enroth playing MORE than Miller if he is playing better?

Enough with these fragile egos!

Play Enroth until he doesn't play well then go back to Miller and let him show his stuff again.

This...

Why not play a goalie who hasn't lost a game? I know it's a short season but wins are wins.
